Supported by an expert panel, the project has three foci: understanding, enabling and extending scientific engagement.
The Occasional Paper Public Perceptions and Understandings of Science, published in October 2021, takes a global perspective which aims to stimulate discussion among science academies and unions.
The podcast series ‘How To Talk About Science’, released in late 2021, is based on a series of conversations with members of the expert panel on how research institutions address issues related to identity, distrust, uncertainty and alternative knowledge systems in their science communication.
A series of webinars called ‘Talk Back Better’ to be held in 2022 will address how to engage constituencies who are hesitant about or resistant to the scientific consensus.
